Accessory and peripheral maker Snakebyte has announced a series of accessories for the Nintendo Switch and NES Classic Mini at this year's CES.
Switch accessories include a foldable headset, carry bag, cleaning cloth, screen protector and caps for the system's analog sticks. In the case of the NES Classic Mini, the company is offering a power supply and controller extension cable.
Here's the full PR:
Snakebyte® group, leading innovators of consumer electronics hardware, announced today a new range of products and accessories compatible with the forthcoming Nintendo Switch™ home gaming system. In addition, the Company also announced a new line of accessories compatible with the popular NES™ Classic Edition system. Both ranges are expected to begin shipping in Spring 2017.
Designed to enhance the portable nature of the Switch console, the snakebyte range has been produced with a strong emphasis on quality, catering to gamers of all ages and robust enough to survive the most demanding of trips. Products in the range include:
Nintendo Switch Foldable Headset
Ideal for on-the-go gaming, the Foldable Headset features powerful 40mm drivers for crisp, clear gaming audio. Neatly folds up when travelling, making it the perfect companion to your Switch tablet.
Nintendo Switch Starter Kit
Featuring all the essential accessories a gamer could ask for, the Starter Kit features a Carry Bag, Stereo Earbuds, Cleaning Cloth, Screen Protector, Control Caps and Game Cases to allow for an enhanced gaming experience and protection for the tablet screen and games.
Since its launch last year, the NES Classic Edition system has captured the imagination of gamers, managing to appeal to multiple generations wishing to re-discover the classic gameplay made so famous by Nintendo. The Classic Edition accessory range from snakebyte extends the appeal of the system yet further. Products in the line include:
Nintendo NES Classic Edition Power Adaptor
The NES Classic Edition is cleverly powered via USB, however sometimes a convenient USB power source is simply unavailable. The NES Classic Edition Power Adaptor accepts the USB cord from the console and allows users to draw power from any regular power outlet.
Nintendo NES Classic Edition Gamepad Extension Cable
Gamers love the authentic NES gamepad but are saddened at the short length of the cable. The NES Classic Edition Gamepad Extension Cable makes couch play a reality once again, instantly adding a generous 9.8 feet to your NES gamepad length!
"Nintendo has a tradition of honouring the past while forging a bold future, and with the release of the NES Classic Edition as well as the forthcoming Switch, we believe that gamers everywhere will respond positively to the new hardware Nintendo are introducing," said Nick Repenning, CEO for snakebyte USA. "We expect our range of Switch accessories to be high quality and thoughtfully designed, ideal for a day one purchase alongside new console sales. We believe that the new products announced today will allow us to continue growing market share in our gaming hardware business and look forward to sharing further details soon."

This is nice and all for the nes classic but can we first get the switch in our hands before we make these accessories. I get trying to make it to the market first but I for one would like to enjoy the device at home first before I decide to look at ways to enhance/protect it. That's just me though.
I'd rather wait for official accessories for the Switch personally... third party stuff just feels kind of cheap to me, and they don't always seem to properly do the job they're supposed to.
Like all my other cases I will stick to Hori for my case needs. I just hope they supply the West with them, I just had to import my N3DS case from Play Asia.
Let's see about Switch...
Switch card case 24, like 3DS.
Switch body cover.
I will be wary undocking my Switch until it's properly protected.
@Anti-Matter and because of hard case and body cover it will not fit in the dock
And me! Lol I'm scare that I might drop it
I'll get the screen protector for the Switch from the Illumishield range if its available. It has worked perfectly from me with my phones, and it doesn't leave bubbles behind.
If the case looks nice, I may get it.
As per usual, I'll wait for official Nintendo ones. Nice to see companies are thinking about this stuff though, I suppose.
The nubs might be useful. They're a great help for the 3DS, but need to feel it in my hands first and they're sticks rather than circle pads.
A screen protector is a must for me and I'd go with Hori or a high-quality brand if I can, though depends what's available.
I need to see how I use the Switch to know what kind of case will be best for my needs. My main 3DS has a hard case which means it will not fit in the charging dock. The Switch dock is far more important for TV out so don't want to have to keep taking off a case. A good protective carry case might be enough.
Where is the source link?
someone should really make a kontrol freek like attachment for the new 3ds. i really hate that eraser nub.
I don't know about the rest but i'm sure that carry bag will come in handy
I like the NS case. However I am hoping someone will do a hard case though.
I'm waiting to see what Hori and Nerf come up with. They have keep my Wii U gamepad safe from kid abuse.
Hn, initially thought these were horrendously but upon closer inspection they're actually quite cute. Waiting on Ninty though to break out the Peach, Kirby, and Pokemon themed accessories.
Control stick condoms!
Why is there a need for a power adapter for the NES Classic? The North American version comes prepackaged with a USB chord and a power adapter. I just have the USB chord plugged into my TV, but if I wanted, I could plug it into the adapter and then into an electrical outlet.
Oh, and I got this 6 foot extension chord from eBay for just $2.27 (plus .12 cents shipping). Works great!
I think everybody is missing the major point in this article, that they are making a foldable headset mic for the Switch. I am assuming that they will have a viable voice chat platform built into the system based on this. Hopefully that is the case, cause ninty needs it!
@akuma104 Like they'd need countless reports of people going "Why don't you kill yourself?" or the numerous "meow YOU's" or many offensive chats happening to force Nintendo to MAN UP?
@YoshiAngemon Watch the language...
